Riva Sponson fit problem
I got some Riva sponsons the other day and they dont fit but they say they r supposed to. Studs come out of the backing plate to far to mount fin. Anyone installed these or had this problem?
Studs sticking out of backing plate.
Anyone got any ideas?

Their was a recall on the factory sponsons. They made the ski chime walk. Yamaha sent out a backing plate for free with new sponsons. Contact Yamaha and see if they have any left. This was a problem with the 99 and 00's If I remember correctly. You could also cut the extra length off the bolt, put a nut on the bolt before you cut the bolt. Lee

Remove studs - use bolts.

My Beach House Sponsons bolted right up on my 2000, notice the 1-1/8" thick backing plates.

See post number 8, I finally found a picture of the complete set of sponsons.

After seeing StLouisRamsfan's sponsons, I see that the Riva's require the backing plate. I would not risk injury by running them without the backing plates.

Thanks Keith! Exactly the proof I needed. After being called every name in the book by fellow members and deleted posts. I was sold the sponsons without all the parts.
